Single-family zoning "has roots in racial and class exclusion and remains among the largest obstacles to realizing the city’s goals for equity and affordability" according to a draft report by the housing task force of Seattle.
So it's recommended the City Council revamp the zoning laws. This way, everyone can afford to be able to live in "micro housing apartments" after developers snatch up all single-family homes on the market in the city and wreck 'em. If you don't know what a "micro-housing apartment" might be, think "human bee hive meets noisy but kitschy third world misery" and you would not be far wrong.
Sure, it's gonna totally wreck the whole flavour of the town, task force co-chair Faith Pettis admitted, but hey! Diversity and affordability and stuff.
You're a snobby racist if ya don't like this idea of living like the Borg. Just so you know.
